sent that same message of leadership that can make a difference-- >> ro the romney-ryan ticket have a built-in advantage. the economy is not going the way anybody wants. they have been struggling for months and months. they put ethics their web site, and position papers but one reason i think romney did so well in first debate is he ran away from any specific he himself has put out. he won't talk as katrina mentioned how you do the tax plan. when he does a foreign policy speech as he says is, "i'll be tougher than barack obama" without saying what he will and endorses most of barack obama's foreign policy. so what we're getting a lot from quar campaign-- you guys are really good at this. i don't work for a campaign so it's not kind of an even fight here-- from your campaign a lot of top-line rhetoric-- i'm strong, he's weak, i can make the economy better. he can't, without either filling in the specifics-- >> the specifics are there. >> go back to the one thing-- >> how to create jobs. >> go back to the one big issue, the big tax cut plan. he will not say how to pay for it. in fact
. but this one could be different. there is pressure on both men, congressman ryan to keep mitt romney's momentum going, and vice president biden to stop that momentum. the moderator tonight is martha raddatz, and for this debate the candidates will be seated at the table. >> good evening, and welcome to the first and only vice presidential debate of 2012s sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. i'm martha raddatz of abc news, and i am honored to moderate this debate between two moan who have dedicated much of their lives to public service. tonight's debate is divided between domestic and foreign policy issues. and i'm going to move back and forth between foreign and domestic since that is what a vice president or president would have to do. we will have nine different segments. at the beginning of each segment, i will ask both candidates a question, and they will each have two minutes to answer. then i will encourage a discussion between the candidates with follow-up questions. by coin toss, it has been determined that vice president biden will be first to answer the opening questio
with 49% for ryan. not surprisingly, both sides claimed victory. mitt romney's campaign said biden seemed off balance and strange. the president's team said the debate exposed the risks of electing a romney/ryan ticket. the next presidential debate is tuesday. >>> while democrats are pleased with vice president biden's performance it's unclear whether his aggressive style was offensive or convincing to the independents who will hold the margin of victory in the presidential election. >> randall, let's talk more. it was obviously interesting to watch. what were the strong and weak points of the candidates? >> reporter: well, certainly vice president biden had to make sure that everyone knew that democrats would fight. i mean, remember that president obama himself said that he was too polite. no one could say that about biden as last night's showdown. ryan had to make sure he didn't lose any ground. this is his first venue for a national audience sitting opposite one of the most powerful democrats in the nation. and he held his own even as mitt romney is beginning to show some improvement i

"time" magazine has released photos of the wisconsin congressman working out. they are actually outtakes of a photo shoot from last year. some critics accuse the editors of the magazine of trying to make ryan look young and trivial. ryan has said he began a commitment to fitness when he was 16 years old after he found his father dead of a heart attack. >>> for more political coverage, just check our exclusive presidential forum on cbssf.com. every day the candidates weigh in on a different issue. >>> 4:34. our second check
continued to play offense in wisconsin friday. >> it's time romney and ryan and the republican congress take a pledge to the middle class people, saying we're going to level the playing field. >>reporter: a day after a spirited vice presidential debate: >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of malarky. >> watch out, middle class, the tax bill is coming to you. >>reporter: both candidates headed back to the campaign trail. >> i feel great. >>reporter: paul ryan stopped for breakfast with his family before teaming up with mitt romney in ohio. >> there was one person on the stage with thoughtfulness who was respectful [ cheers and applause ] >> who was steady and poised. >>reporter: the obama campaign says the vice president walked away with the win, but friday the white house had to defend his answer about the deadly attack in benghazi, libya. >> we weren't told they wanted more security. >>reporter: former security officials testified this week that they had asked for more manpower. >> he's doubling down on denial and we need to understand exactly what happened. >>reporter: white hou
in the ryan plan is automatically going to be in the romney plan. >> schieffer: well, mitt romney has said it won't be. >> exactly. but think a lot of what joe biden is going to say is whatever paul ryan has ever said is going to be what mitt romney said. that's not the case. >> i still think you have an incredible economic debate to have in this country. i think there are great issues to talk about and i think this will continue in the vice presidential debate. >> schieffer: not to mention the job numbers. >> reporter: exactly. the word "fiscal cliff" was never mentioned in the first debate as will likely come up, i sawcial in the vice presidential debate. and you do have an important argument to have, which is is the future of this country and the size and spending of government. and you have two dip candidates proposalsing vastly different things. tax reform has to be done because of this fiscal cliff. mitt romney is proposing not only keeping the bush tax cuts but a 20% reduction for everyone. president obama is proposing to get rid of the bush tax cuts for the wealthiest americans but
a romney-ryan ticket is about in. >> absolutely. joe biden for as placid as obama was, he is going to throw red meat at ryan. and it's going to be also about foreign policy which ryan has little experience. >> and then medicare. >> by the end of the debate, the world will assume that paul ryan is spending the $716 billion in medicare money. it will not continue to be obama. >> biden also has a propensity for, shall we say, putting his foot in his snout. >> that's what makes it such great television. you don't know what he's going to say. >> great television. >> okay. >> this is civic, okay? >> political game. this is for television. >> and there is such an incredible contrast in age. ryan looks like he is 25. biden looks like he is three times 25. it's going to be interesting from that standpoint as well. >> we will be breaking it down for you next sunday. >> that's right. >>> but coming up, we'll have one last look at some of this morning's top stories. >> including a missing wallet. a postal carrier's lost and found story. we'll be right back. ,,,, vo: for years, sacramento politicians ha
don't pay federal income taxes. ryan tried to turn romney's comments on biden. >> with respect to that quote i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> reporter: biden shot back. >> 47%, you think he just made a mistake, then i think you're -- i got a bridge to sell you. >> reporter: he also went after romney's plan for tax cuts. >> not mathematically possible. >> it is. it's been done before. it's precisely what we're proposing. >> it's never been done before. >> it's been done a couple of times. jack kennedy lowered tax increase growth. ronald reagan -- >> now you're jack kennedy? >> chairman of the budget committee stood his ground. >> this is what politicians do when they don't have a record to run on. try to scare people from voting for you. >> pressured on romney's plan to reform social security and medicare, ryan didn't back down. >> they haven't put a credible solution on the table. he'll tell you about vouchers. he'll say all these things to try to scare people. >> reporte
and how the romney-ryan team will turn things around. what he has to be careful about is to make sure that whatever he says is going to be in sync with the top of the ticket because some of ryan's positions have been slightly refuted by mitt romney who has made it clear that he is at the top of the ticket and it is going to be his policies that will rule. for vice president biden, he has to whip up the enthusiasm. he also will be trying to make sure voters know that president obama has accomplished something in the past four years. he will try to spell it out just as he did at the democratic convention. and biden will have to be careful not to make one of his famous gaffs. >> he is a great debater on the senate floor but has been known to make a few boo boos for lack of a better word. >> reporter: well, certainly as reporters will be looking forward to whatever he has to say. [ laughter ] >> reporter: that we can talk about tomorrow morning. if it's a gaff, so be it. >> well, we'll all find out tonight. thank you so much, randall pinkston, live for us in danville, kentucky at the site
discipline with respect to mitt romney's positions. ryan of course has put forth some budgetary proposals that romney has said listen, i'm the guy in charge, i'm going to be the one who will make sure that the policies that are in place will be my policies. so ryan is going to have to make sure he is in sync with romney. but all in all, you know, romney has the momentum now and we'll see how it turns out tonight. >> you talked about the strategy. we are watching the presidential debate and there weren't too many sparks flying in that debate. do you think that's going to happen in this one? >> well, you know, you can always count on vice president biden to say something interesting. the question is, whether he will have to perhaps back away from it later on. he is renowned for his gaffs but we also know that biden is a very, very experienced politician. he has been in the senate for a lot of years. he knows how to debate on the floor of congress and he made a very spirited defense of the obama record at the democratic convention. expect the same thing to happen here tonight. >> do you t
